Status Pages>Custom Domains are now HTTPs-enabled
Public Status Pages, a feature to easily share the statuses of the monitors with others, was introduced few months ago.
The standard status page URLs (like https://stats.uptimerobot.com/xyz) were HTTPs-enabled since day one.
However, the ones behind a custom domain (like http://status.mywebsite.com) were not as it was a little more tricky to get a SSL certificate for all the custom domains.
Good news, custom domains are now HTTPs enabled too (thanks to the free + automated CA: Let’s Encrypt).
And, all status pages are actually HTTPs-only from now on.
Important note for CloudFlare users:
As the status pages are now HTTPs-only, the “flexible SSL feature of CloudFlare” will end up in an infinite redirect. There are 2 options to make it work:
- disabling the “cloud feature” for the CNAME
- or, using Full or Strict SSL feature
